I have only read a little bit of the book, but it is very good. It is in an old English righting style that as you read you get used to. I personally find the many stories beautiful to know how other believers finished the race so strong, and not by there personal strength, but by God's.
A great book to see what it truly means to be a martyr. Are you a true follower of Jesus? What would you do if your family was in front of you and someone said reject Christ or see them slowly be put to death? If you were tould reject Jesus or take a bullet in the head? See what it was like to be a follower and doer of the word.
A master piece, shows persecution of God's real church and shows how the Catholics killed men who stood up for God's word and wouldn't confess Mary as co-redeemer with our Lord Jesus Christ. A good book to read to encourage you when you go through trials that you are not promised an easy life. Also to evangelize to the unsaved as these counted their life not as important as the gospel, so should we be and not fear man! this book is a real blessing to read and a cheap buy.
